We’ve all heard of the notorious Freshman 15, but trust me, there’s nothing to worry about as long as your adopt healthy habits early on in your collegiate career.  Here are five of my tips for staying fit while still having an amazing time:

Workout before class
Waking up early can be hard, especially in college, but if you’re one of the lucky ones and start classes later in the day, squeeze in a workout in A.M. You’re able to get it out the way and you’ll feel much more energized for the rest of your day!

Carry protein bars or a piece of fruit in your bag
Sitting in class can get super awkward with a growling stomach…trust me, I’ve been there. By always having a snack handy, you’re saving yourself from an unhealthy dining hall binge and allowing yourself the chance to actually focus on the class and NOT your vocal tummy.

Limit drinking to 1-2 nights a week
Avoiding alcohol in college is almost impossible, but just because it’s available doesn’t mean you have to indulge every time. Alcohol is heavy in calories and don’t even get me started on how much sugar is in those mixers…You don’t have to miss out on the fun, but just be responsible!  

Don’t adopt your friend’s eating habits
Being surrounded by pizza and Chinese can be extremely tempting when your friends always have it around, but stay strong! Bring your own food to group hangouts or if that’s not an option, order one of the healthy options on the menu.

Drink a ton of water
This is super important. Staying hydrated not only helps fight off the fatigue from late nights doing homework…or partying, but it helps keep your skin clear. Now who doesn’t want clear skin??
